colin powell, brian williams and president obama himself. colin powell went on the sunday shows and talk drop the so-called dark vein of intolerance that was running throughout the republican party. what evidence did he provide? that we are not left wing, that we don't believe in anthropogenic climate change or we don't believe that there should be redistribution of wealth so we don't believe in obamacare. if we would just move to let suddenly that would make is not racist. now, he should know how not racist our party is considering so many in our party were considering supporting and despite his liberalism, and he was secretary of state under president bush obviously. somebody treated very well by the republican party, but that did not stop him because now he's on the left which means that we had the bad guys. president obama did it in his inaugural address just last week also. he said a peculiar line in his speech very said that absolutism is not principal and he said that name-calling is not discussion. he then proceeded to read avoid principal and be an absolutist and suggest th

need to have a vague understanding of why the federal reserve did what it did and the obama administration did raise the deficit, bigger deficits are bad but there was a rationale for a stimulus package. but the biggest message of the book to me as the author is a paradox of the private markets ran amok but pretty effectively to put things back on track but at the end of the day you witnessed a sharp backlash you call it a big government americans are against it. but there was a reason for the government intervention the likes we have not seen since the 1930's and it would have been a preview. nonetheless you did have a backlash against the government in general, president obama, it would have been against him him, against a democratic party more generally, the federal reserve, keynesian economics which i am perfect -- prepared to defend. but what both ended the of backlash period but my favorite cartoon from the crisis appears in "the new yorker" march 2009 and it shows a page set in in medieval castle courtyard and the king said is on the chopping block. wait stop governme

obama to bush or anyone before or after, that's a good thing. that fear does disappear, and i'm not sure i would do much better, but the details you see about presidents in this book are based on my interactions with bush and what i saw there and how he reacted to that. so when you see the president reacted to his assassin here, it's better to -- we all know there's nothing easier to write about than a president, yes, mr. passport, no, mr. president. it's a terrible scene but when you feel it with redeal tails, fiction is best when it has one foot in reality. and the place we got explore, got to do camp david. i had never been there before, and i didn't know what camp david was. i knew the camp david accords. but what is this place that they go and do this? sign accords there all day? i found out that camp david has security that is better than the white house. what is going on there that they have better security than how to white house? marines and secret service. double time it's amazing. and the park guys are out there. and presidents can use it -- it's really their second home,

. i know much of the nation has already moved on, and president obama's rhetoric about the promise of america, life, liberty, justice, equality for all has already been forgotten by many, and i know that many people in america will not think of dr. king again until his holiday rolls around again next year. but i would like to us to pause to night and think more deeply about the meaning of dr. king's life and his legacy and what it has to teach the nation's present. it seems important to do that given that this year marks the 50th anniversary of the march on washington. 50 years have passed. 50 years have passed since kaine's voice soared over the washington monument declaring his dream. i have a dream, it is a deeply rooted in the american dream. yesterday while i was watching president obama's inaugural address i met echoes of the speech i have a dream and when i turned off my television set, i spent a few minutes reflecting are all of us truly welcome to share in this dream? most americans i sure can be cite portions of dr. king's i have a dream speech by heart. it's an extraordinar
